Applied Technology Education Campus (ATEC) students captured first place in state competition for their community awareness project on fighting hunger in Kershaw County.

Journee Mills, Mickayla McIntyre, Linda Dingus and Sarah Marthers were honored for their project at the state Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) Leadership Conference held March 8-10 in North Charleston.

Mark Sury placed third in the prepared speaking competition. All five students qualify for national competition this summer in Orlando, FL.

Other ATEC students placed in the top five in various HOSA competitions. They included Scarlett Jones in job seeking skills and Karina Nolasco in extemporaneous writing. Fatima Agredano, Paulina Agredano, Emily Foxworth and Edwin Gonzalez finished in the top five for public service announcement.

HOSA is a national leadership organization for students enrolled in health-related programs. Twenty-three ATEC students enrolled in the health science and honors biomedical programs were accompanied to the conference by their instructors Tammy Pugh, Laura Marshall and Brooke Bradshaw.

“We are very proud of our health science and biomedical students here at ATEC,” says director Gordon Morris. “They excel not only in the classroom but also outside the classroom in competitions like this.”
